  1. The Gympie Gympie, a rather cute sounding name for a plant.  This tree grows in rainforest areas of Australia and has stinging leaves so horrendously agonising that it can even kill a human.  If you are lucky (or is that unlucky?) enough to survive, then the agony can last weeks or months and can reoccur over and over again for years.  In fact, just breathing near this plant is ill-advised.  That’s a hell of a plant!

      I’ve never had an urge to explore rain forests anywhere on the planet, and it’s things like this plant which reaffirm my decision. :blink:

      The way things are going, I am surprised we haven’t seen it featured in “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!” where the celebrity has to navigate a grove full of these trees to get a plastic yellow star at the other end which will buy them a pound of brown rice for camp. Our television is like Rome and the collusseum all over again.

      Actually, there’s more than a few celebrities I’d enjoy watching do that, now that you mention it.
